In 2002 a determined mother of 4 was on the hunt for a school for her youngest daughter, Caroline. She was bright, loved music, and had a big personality and sense of humor, and yet she was blocked from getting a high-quality education due to her disabilities and complex medical needs. Though many would have given up, Elizabeth DeLuca looked at her daughter and knew what she had to do. The DeLuca family created a school for students with multiple disabilities, developmental delays, and medical needs. Caroline inspired a school that sees a child's strengths, not only their challenges, and encourages them to reach for more. The Caroline School at Easter Seals Greater Houston was born.
This extraordinary school has bloomed in the years since its inception. The classes have a low teacher-to-student ratio, weekly therapeutic enrichment, and incorporate the Assistive Technology Lab. Students with various diagnoses and backgrounds have walked and rolled through the halls, gaining skills, independence, and friendship. Prioritizing inclusion and individualized learning is part of the incredible legacy of Caroline DeLuca, who passed in 2016.
In June, The Caroline School families and educators joyfully watched three students don cap and gown and walk across the graduation stage; a sight once thought impossible. The Caroline School community is equally proud of their former students who have transitioned to mainstream education thanks to the specialized education foundation they received. These major accomplishments speak to the mission of The Caroline School, working with families to create personalized instruction to help students reach their goals.
